Sharp Zaurus was Re: [GLLUG] MP3 Players

I was going to do a write-up on my new handheld later on, but now is as
good as any.

I just got a Sharp Zaurus yesterday.  I have only messed with it for a
couple of hours, but I am impressed.  It plays MP3's  (ogg too with 3rd
party software).

It has a Compact flash slot *and* a SD slot, so you can load it up with a
lot of memory.   Plus it does a heck of a lot more than play MP3's.

I bought an 802.11b card so I can surf the web (Opera built in) and SSH
into my servers on my back patio.   I have not installed this yet.

Other cool things:
Linux 2.4 kernel
bash shell
Python 2
Voice recorder

This thing is head and sholders above my old Palm IIIxe

I am considering purchasing an MP3 player, something capable of storing a
large number of files.  Anyone have concerns, experiences, hate, joy, etc
with Archos or Ipod or another player?
